About GCRA


GCRA provides the opportunity for residents of Greenville County to achieve the American Dream through affordable housing opportunities and community revitalization.

Established in 1974, the Greenville County Redevelopment Authority (GCRA) works to improve the living conditions of the county’s residents by building new homes, rehabilitating existing homes and improving the infrastructures within communities.  GCRA also provides funding for many non-profits that provide services in the community. By developing community partnerships and administering funds from U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), GCRA works to build a better quality of life for the citizens of Greenville County.

Comprehensive Approach

GCRA uses a holistic approach in the revitalization of communities focusing on the physical, social and economic infrastructure of each area. First-time homebuyers can purchase one of GCRA’s newly constructed homes, or current homeowners can repair or improve their homes through GCRA’s repair programs.

Strong partnerships make it possible for GCRA to conduct beautification and public works projects such as improving streets, sidewalks, lighting, drainage, sewers, and parks, which maintain a safe and beautiful environment for all residents to enjoy.
